China Scam Patrol publishes 2017 Top 20 List of Worst China job scams with Foreign HR, Laowai Career Center, and Echinacities taking top rankings



Since 2010, Jason and his team at China Scam Patrol have kept us all from stepping in the foulest shit possible and continues to do so for absolutely free. God forbid if he ever gets married and settles down to raise a family, we all be like kids walking barefoot through a cow pasture on a moonless night. We could smell the danger, but not really know which way to take the next step!

But we need not worry for another year as the CSP team helps us update our blacklist and our fellow teachers in China take care of building our white list which now has over 1,600 vetted schools on it.
